Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Buckeye Land

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Buckeye Land

The Crowned Heads Buckeye Land is more straight forward in flavors (chocolate, black pepper, soil/dirt) but the number of flavors is not indicative of a bad cigar. Quite the contrary, it is a straight forward approach to a great tasting cigar. Between this cigar and the Court Reserve XVIII Robusto, it's safe to say Crowned Heads got Mexican San Andres on lock down this year.

Team Cigar Review: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino

Team Cigar Review: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino

The Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino is our second vitola reviewed within this line. Looking back at the Toro format, the tasting notes of this Belicoso Fino seemed like I was smoking two different cigars. The Toro was generic in flavors whereas the Belicoso Fino was distinct and fuller in flavors. This format is no doubt the clear winner of the two.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

The Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Corona is by far my favorite format in the line. Having smoked the Flying Pig, Toro and now the Corona, the Corona packs the most amount of punch in flavor intensities. The flavor intensities are also well matched by a stronger cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate FSG Toro

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate FSG Toro

The flavor profile is quite interesting with the wood notes and heavy earthiness along with the unique citrus note. Construction was excellent and this cigar just poured out smoke. The FSG tobacco project is very interesting and with smoking this cigar, and other vitolas, has me very interested in trying some of the other brands/lines that use this tobacco.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

The flavor profile of the Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig was primarily oak and earthiness but had some added cinnamon at the beginning and added some mustiness and char towards the end. This is definitely an enjoyable cigar and has me looking forward to smoking more in this vitola as well as the others.

Team Cigar Review: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Toro

Team Cigar Review: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Toro

The cigar started off with a nice wood and spice combination. As things progressed it settled into a standard woody profile with some char and alternated between this and a slightly green wood note.
